North London Knockout: Spurs vs. Arsenal Community Player Ratings

New, comments

Spurs are out of the Capital One Cup thanks to North London rivals Arsenal. Was this the worst performance of the season? The community seems to think so.

Not a lot of really positive performances to work with here, but it looks like Danny Rose was actually pretty good. That's an encouraging sign given the egg he laid in his last match for Spurs.

Rose looked much more confident defensively this week and made quite a few tackles to win possession back for Spurs. Going forward, however, he left a lot to be desired, completing just 4/14 long balls and delivering no accurate crosses. Rose needs to put in quality performances at both ends of the pitch to take his spot back from Ben Davies, but I'm not sure this was one of those types of outings.

2. Eric Dier - DM 6.6

Not Dier's best match of the season, but given the way he's played this year, that's not so bad. I think it's telling that Dier's worst performances have come when partnered with Tom Carroll. I'm not sure why the two don't seem to click, perhaps it's that they both want to sit deep, but Dier is really ruining the masthead's dream of a Dier-Carroll-Alli three-man midfield.

3. Christian Eriksen - AMC 6.5

This was Eriksen's first start after about a month out with injury and he looked fine. Not good. Not bad. Just fine. Flanked by Chadli and Townsend, Eriksen didn't seem like he had a lot of support in the attacking band, but he linked well with Kane on several occasions and only the strikers poor luck prevented Eriksen from having an assist.

It's great to have Eriksen back in the lineup, but I'm much more interested to see him with our "A" Team as opposed to the squad we ran out for this game.

OTHERS: Vorm (4.7), Trippier (5.7), Fazio (3.2), Wimmer (5.8), Carroll (6.0), Townsend (5.6), Chadli (6.0), Kane (6.3)

SUBS: Son (5.5), Clinton (5.6), Alli (5.8)
